What's up with Lutherans?Page 1 of 1    
So I'm back cruising profiles, and I notice that quite a number of local ladies list themselves as Lutheran. There are way more Lutherans on POF than I usually run into in my regular life.

What I'm wondering is - are female Lutherans more likely to break up relationships or is it that they are just more out-going and willling to post profiles of themselves here. Is there some kind of POF take over conspiracy by their church?

Enquiring minds need to know.

Peace all.

An essay on why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish

Let us commence a journey into the much travelled topic of why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish. Underestimate why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish at your peril. Though why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish is a favourite topic of discussion amongst monarchs, presidents and dictators, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. The juxtapositioning of why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from the over 50, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish. In the light of this I will break down the issues in order to give each of them the thought that they fully deserve

Social Factors

Comparisons between Roman Society and Medieval Society give a clear picture of the importance of why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish to developments in social conduct. I will not insult the readers inteligence by explaining this obvious comparison any further. When Sir Bernard Chivilary said 'hounds will feast on society' [1] he shead new light on why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish, allowing man to take it by the hand and understand its momentum. A child?s approach to why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish smells of success.

Did I mention how lovely why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish is? Clearly it promotes higher individualism and obeyence of instinct. As soon as a child meets why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish they are changed.

Economic Factors

The dictionary defines economics as 'the social science concerned with the production, distribution, exchange, and consumption of goods and services'. We will primarily be focusing on the Lead-a-Duck-to-Water model, a complex but ultimately rewarding system.

Oil Prices vs. why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish


What a splendid graph. My personal view is that oil prices plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. A sharp down turn in middle class investment may lead to changes in the market.

Political Factors

Politics, we all agree, is a fact of life. Looking at the spectrum represented by a single political party can be reminiscent of comparing why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fishism and post-why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fishism.

One quote comes instantly to mind when examining this topic. I mean of course the words of the famous political Elijah Bootlegger 'Taking a walk across hot coals will inevitably hurt your feet.' [2] Primarily, he is referring to why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish. It would be wise to approach the subject with the thought that 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'. However this can lead to missing out important facts.

Where do we go from here? Only time will tell.

Conclusion

We can conclude that the why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish plays a large part in the lives of all. It establishes order, brings glamour to an unglamorous time, though why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish brings with it obvious difficulties, it is truly why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish.

Let's finish with a thought from star Clint Clooney: 'I demand why there are so many Lutherans on Plenty of Fish, nothing more nothing less.' [3]

I think it is because there aren't many Lutheran guys in church! There are a lot of single ladies...not so many single guys. At least, that's what I've found in the different Lutheran churches I've been too.

Plus, I think Lutherans aren't afraid to call themselves Lutheran. Society really has a negative view of the label "denomination" but, Lutherans aren't afraid of it. We believe the Bible has a wonderful message of grace through faith in Jesus Christ, which is a free gift so that no one can boast, to share that is lacking in today's society. That's not to say that this message is lacking in other churches, but, historically speaking, the Lutheran church was basically founded on this message and runs throughout all our doctrine!

We also like potlucks...Lutherans are known for potlucks too!

I am sorry to disappoint people on here who have come to expect me to make some intelligent comments on anything religious......but frankly when the last post said he was from Pa...I thought he meant Prince Albert , Sask....and when I skimmed through the list that was so painstakingly composed, frankly I couldn't understand half of the references......is this some Missouri Synod type of thing or what?

Oh and by the way people from Canada and Montana, Martin Luther was not some black dude who got killed for some reason having to do with Kennedys....ha! (at least thats what clandestine Masons would have us believe)

Anyone "protesting" to these comments is quite likely a protestant.
